Following Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMP) is, in general, required if you manufacture, process, pack or hold human food. Even if not required, if you sell food to the public, using this guidance will support the production of safer food.

This CGMP checklist is based on the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 21, Part 117 (Current Good Manufacturing Practice, Hazard Analysis, and Risk-Based Preventive Controls for Human Food, current as of 4/1/18), Subpart B - Current Good Manufacturing Practice.

While every effort was made to maintain the original wording of each item in this regulation, some wording changes and edits were made.  Please reference the regulations at the link above to ensure accurate interpretation of the regulation.
